Amber Head 3, fired clay and glaze by Amy Evans McClure

Amy Evans McClure: creates “spirit guides” through her sculpture: figures, horses, goddesses, buddhas, and abstract shapes. She began life in New York, was illuminated by Arizona mountains and mesas, now her art grows near forest and ocean in the Bay Area of northern California. Her most recent sculptural commission is installed in The Bancroft Library, University of California Berkeley. Art in America editor Michael Duncan contrasts her artwork with Kiki Smith and Louise Bourgeois in his essay introducing the newly released book, Amy Evans McClure: Space In Situ. She lives in the hills of Oakland with horses nearby and the roar of the freeway below.
